  • The six articles of Sunni Islam
    • Tawhid
      • Is having absolute faith in the oneness of God. Allah is simply the Arabic word for God and is not the name of any other being. Nothing can be likened to him and it is important to note that Allah has no plural in Arabic
    • Angels (Malaikah)
      • Are important because God’s greatness means that he cannot communicat directly with humans. He therefore passed messages (Risalah) to his prophets via the angels, who were his first creation.
    • The Holy Books
      • should be respected, especially the Qur’an, which is a direct revelation from God – it is God’s word.
    • The Prophets (Nubuwwah)
      • should be respected, especially  Muhammad, known as the Seal of the Prophets (the last prophet).
    • The Day Of Judgement and Afterlife (Akhira)
      • All Muslims will be judged by God and sent to either Paradise or Hell.
    • Al Qadr -Predestination
      • that everything in the universe is following a divine masterplan. This shows the importance of God’s will, as Allah knows or decides everything that will happen
